Planting UK woodlands for carbon capture and ecosystem services

Forest Carbon leads the way in voluntary carbon woodland creation in the UK. Through the planting of 7.5 million new trees in the UK (and a total of 9 million globally) since 2006 our partners’ projects are removing nearly 2 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere, as well as providing a host of other benefits to society, including flood mitigation, river improvement and public access.

Yes, really. The Natural Selection Brewing Company launched its limited edition beer The Altruist on 27th June at 6 Degrees North Edinburgh. They've worked with us to mitigate the carbon footprint of the production and distribution of this beer at our project at Talla & Gameshope. They tell their story better than we can, so check it out here on their website.

Carbon mitigation for small businesses and households

Jun 11, 2019

We had a fantastic week at the Chelsea Flower Show - met hundreds of people with loads of questions about what we do. We found great interest in our new small business and household Carbon Clubs, which we set up recently to enable small businesses, and households to mitigate their carbon footprints through properly certified woodland creation in the UK - in the same way that our bigger partners have been able to do these past 14 years.

Both Clubs are designed to make the process as straighforwa...

Turning targets into action

Jun 10, 2019

After several weeks of Extinction Rebellion protests in London, it was encouraging to learn that the Environment Secretary is broadly supportive of the timely Committee on Climate Change ‘Net Zero’ report, which offers a detailed and highly ambitious blueprint for the UK to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This includes increasing the UK ‘net forestry sink’ to 22 million tonnes per annum by 2050 by trebling annual rates for woodland creation (another 1.5 billion trees), a massive uplif...

Where our
woodlands are

Forest Carbon leads the way in voluntary carbon woodland creation in the UK. Through the planting of over 7.5 million new trees in 145+ new woodlands in the UK since 2006 our partners’ projects are removing over 1,900,000 tonnes of CO2 from the global atmosphere, as well as providing a host of other benefits to society, including flood mitigation, river improvement and public access.

The quality of our schemes is assured by the UK government’s Woodland Carbon Code which certifies our projects in important areas like biodiversity, ‘additionality’, risk management and carbon capture measurement.

Compensating for your unavoidable environmental impact by helping to create a new woodland is rewarding in many ways. Check out our woodland location map and see what trees we’ve planted.
